When I am happy, I feel your warm smile In the bright sunshine. When I am proud, You press one laurel leaf into my palm And kindly tell me to be careful. When I am ill, Your gentle touch Restores me to health. When I am sad, The tears in your eyes Let me know you understand. When the world is too much for me, You lovingly push me down To be still and take the rest I need. When I am fearful, You cover me with a dome of protection So I can do what I need to do. When I am worried for others, You read the letters I write to you And offer your help to those people. Apollo, when the Great Logos created you, It knew that many like me Needed someone with a heart That is much larger than we of this world Could ever describe. -- Phoebe Lyra, 2002
